At 7 years old, children in the Andes of Peru begin walking up to 8 hours daily to get to school...

side

When they get to school, they are taught from a westernised curriculum which is irrelevant to their needs...

side

Just the first of many obstacles which face a Quechua child growing up in modern Peru...

In 2008, Amantani spoke with the parents from one school and decided to help them take action...

side

Together we established 2 boarding houses, each for 22 girls...

side

And then one for 20 boys...

side

Our inter-cultural approach helps children take advantage of the modernisation of their district, rather than fall victim to it...

"I'm happy in the boarding house because now I don't have to walk like before. I used to arrive home very tired and didn't have time to do homework."

side

"Thanks to the project, everything has got better in my studies as well as other areas. I am not so shy like I used to be."

side

"It is so unusual to find a project where the emphasis is on the locals making a difference for themselves."
